Season 1 2023 iRacing Plan

This week at Coach Dave Academy we are outlining our plans for season 1 of 2023 including our setup schedules as well as the lap guides and broadcast plans we have.

Season 1 of 2023 is here at Coach Dave Academy. We firstly want to thank everyone for their support over the past year. With that in mind, CDA is pleased to announce that we will continue to do a full iRacing programme for the upcoming season going into 2023, as well as continuing a full broadcast schedule and dedicated lap guides throughout the season. 

So what exactly can you expect as a Coach Dave Academy customer for season 1 of 2023? 


We will retain the same top level drivers that we had from the previous season which consists of the following: 

Setup Team

  • Mikkel Gade – iRating: 9000
  • Corentin Guinez – iRating: 7904 
  • Kieran Harrison – iRating 7000 
  • Bart Horsten – iRating 4800
  • Manu Rey O Largo – iRating: 7003

Lap Guide Team 

  • Yuri Kasdorp
  • Corentin Guinez  
  • Kieran Harrison
  • Suellio Almeida 
  • Manu Rey O Largo 


Like last season we will continue to do a full comprehensive lap guide schedule. For the new season however, we are tweaking slightly how we go about providing that content. 

After going through all the figures from the previous season, we have decided to have dedicated lap guide creators that stick to one series throughout the entire twelve week period so that the continuity is there with both series and lap guide driver. These combinations are as follows 

  • Falken GT4 Series – Kieran Harrison/Corentin Guinez
  • VRS GT3 Series – Yuri Kasdorp 
  • Porsche Cup Series – Suellio Almeida 
  • Formula 4 – Manu Rey O Largo (on even number weeks)
  • All iRacing Special Events (Drivers will rotate based on cars/series)


We have slightly tweaked the setup offering from Coach Dave Academy compared to Season 4 of 2022, with brand new cars getting the CDA treatment and some changes to driver preferences. Our full schedule is as follows: 

Manu Rey O Largo 


  • Mercedes AMG GT3 EVO
  • Lamborghini GT3 EVO 
  • BMW M Hybrid V8
